Here we're going to take a look at some more shortcuts that we can use when working with the Map module. Let's start off by looking at how we can show or hide what's called the map information overlay. Press the I key once, you can see that this will show us the area that we're looking at; in this case, New York, New York. Press the I key again in order to hide that. Next what I want to do is want to find a location, and then add the images to that location, and save that in the Map module. To do that, we're going to use that Location Filter bar that we can see at top.
You know, you can show or hide that by pressing the backslash key; press it again, and you can show that. That's the same shortcut that we used to toggle the visibility of the filtering that we have in the Library module, so that's pretty easy to remember. Well, next should I want to do is highlight the Search Map field here. To do that by way of a shortcut, you can press Command+F on a Mac, or Control+F on Windows, and the location that I want to find is the Brooklyn Bridge, because that's where all of these photographs were captured. Press Enter or Return after you typed out your search, and then click on the option which best relates to the search that you're doing; in this case, the Brooklyn Bridge.
Here I want to add all of these photographs to that location, so click on one image, hold down the Shift key, click on another, then drag and drop these photographs to this location. Now we have this little marker that we can click on, and then click through the photographs that we've added to this location. Next, you can click off of that in order to close it. Well, if I want to save this as a Location, we can click on the plus icon, save this out as a Location of Brooklyn Bridge; next, click Create.
Well, in doing that, you can see that my saved location is too big. Here we'll go ahead and click on this icon in the location overlay, and then click and drag down, and by clicking and dragging down, I can make this smaller, and reposition this, so that it's just covering the Brooklyn Bridge. To zoom in, press the Plus key. All right, well now that we've zoomed in, what I want to do is take a look at how we can work with this little location here, in regards to the overlay. Sometimes it's nice to see the overlay; other times it's a little bit distracting.
You can press the O key to toggle the visibility of that location overlay icon, which allows you to resize or reposition where this saved location actually is. All right. What about the little marker there that we searched for when we searched for the Brooklyn Bridge? To hide that, just click on the little X icon in that Search Map field, and that will then hide that icon. Next, with the marker, we've seen how we can click on this to view the photographs, but we can also hold down the Control key, and click on that, to look at a few options. Here he can zoom in on that location to get really close to where this is, or if we Control+ click or right-click on that, we can select the photos from that location or delete the GPS coordinates that were added to these particular pictures.
Another way that we can delete coordinates is by working with the pictures themselves. Here I'll go and press the Minus key a few times to zoom out, just so that we can start to look at that. Well here, if we select the photographs that we have by clicking, holding the Shift key, and clicking, we can delete the GPS information, or we can delete all of the location metadata. To do that, press the Delete, or the Backspace key, and that will allow you to delete just the GPS information. To delete all of the location metadata, press Command+Delete on a Mac, or Control+Backspace on Windows, and here you can see, you can delete all the location metadata from all the selected photos, or just the active photo.
In this case, let's say that we want to delete everything. Here we'll go ahead and click on Delete All Selected, and you can see how that will then delete all of that information from these photographs.
